Essential Digital Protection for Business

The Essential Digital Protection for Business conference is designed to help small and medium-sized businesses protect themselves from cyber attacks and advise on what to do in the event that they are targeted.

Posted on 22 February 2018

The free event at Pride Park in Derby on Friday 9 March 2018 will bring together experts in the field and is hosted by the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU), which works on behalf of the region’s five police forces in tackling serious, organised and major crime, counter-terrorism and domestic extremism.

Chief Constable Peter Goodman, National Police Chiefs' Council Lead for Cyber Crime said:

"Digital Crime is now the biggest single crime category faced by police. The majority of organisations have had some sort of security breach and businesses and industry need to work closely with the police to try and prevent and detect cyberattacks. This conference is the perfect opportunity to learn how to protect your business and livelihood."

Chief Constable Peter Goodman will be delivering a key note speech outlining the main issues affecting businesses and will be followed by presentations on how to protect your business, the impact of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation and a panel discussion on the response to a cyberattack.

For those unable to attend the full day event, a breakfast session is being held covering the key points of the day, from 8am until 9am. Those who are unable to travel to Derby, can join the livestream of the event and feed their questions into the speakers.
